Townes

with 2 comments

Watching Crazy Heart tonight, I was reminded of the phenomenal Austin City Limits tribute to Townes van Zandt—and particularly two songs. In the first one, Steve Earle makes Nanci Griffith cry.

In the second, which occurs right after the Earle song, she clearly comes close to crying again (at about 4:00) only to pull it back in time to sing:

There are only a handful of artists I wish I could discover again for the first time. Nanci Griffith is one of them.

  1. I was lucky enough to see Townes Van Zandt open for Cowboy Junkies at Sloss Furnace in Birmingham. I remember 1) not knowing who he was and 2) thinking he was OK. I think we watched that Austin City Limits episode together, also too. Awwww. In addition: when I was on the summer thingy in Vienna, I got a homesick girl who missed her boyfriend to cry by letting her listen to Nanci sing I Would Bring You Ireland.

  2. Eva Cassidy might be one of those I’d like to find for the first time.
